Newark Castle Events 2017
Sunday 17 December 1pm to 3pm
Join the Newark Castle Rocks team for crafting in the undercroft and for some Christmassy family fun.
- Children's craft tables
- Create a celebration decorated rock
- Festive tunes
- Sing-a-long Christmas carols and hot chocolate
The team will keep the celebration rocks safe to dry and varnish them ready for collection at a later date. There will be a children's rock hiding event on Friday 29 December at 1pm.
£2 per child or £5 for 3 or more children (to cover the cost of resources and refreshments)
Carols in the Castle and Light up a Life, Newark Castle
Thursday 21 December, 5pm onwards
Carols, readings, time for reflection and remembrance will begin at 6pm. This year, you are invited to bring a photograph of your loved one(s) along with a message to hang and display on the memory wall of light during the service (please laminate or cover your photo and collect it at the end of the evening).
Christmas is a special time of year, but for many who have lost a loved one, it can be a time with both sad and happy memories. In Lighting up a Life at Christmas we hope that this time of reflection will bring comfort to you. It is free to attend and everyone is welcome.
